22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem OR $5.99 Very dark brown beer..almost black in the center of the glass. Head is huge and creamy light tan coloured. Great malty/nutty/cream aromas..also getting some of that Lindt Dark chocolate and sea salt thing. Taste is very similar to the aroma but the Dark chocolate/sea salt aspect is greater..which i like.’ Really good mouth feel this is a heavy beer but the palate was light,smooth,silky but never watery. Very nice Baltic..will have again.

A - Not the prettiest beer, but true to the Baltic Porter style. It is dark brown with hints of ruby red. Though dark, you can still tell that it's murky and lackluster in terms of clarity, but I believe that's the correct look per the style. Relatively thin beige head, with a small amount of foam retained as the beer is consumed, good degree of lacing.

S - I quite enjoy the smell of this beer. Not especially pungent, but very pleasant with nutty and smoky malts at the forefront and dark fermented fruits, like raisins and prunes, in the back.

T - Nutty, roasted malts dominate the palate. Biscuity yeast present, plus molasses-like sweetness, but not overly sweet. Nice dark fruit, raisins, dark cherries. Well-balanced.

M - Medium bodied and chewy. Smooth with a dry finish. Medium level of carbonation.

O - This is my first beer from the Heater Allen brewery and I'm pleased. Sandy Paws is in keeping with the Baltic Porter style. It's quite good. I'd have it again.

on-tap @ the Horse Brass Pub.
from notes.

Black, with deep ruby edges when held to light and a foamy, tan head with thick lacing.

Deep, roasty, cocoa notes. Very enjoyable. Faint dark fruit and spice notes.

Medium+ body, foamy carbonation.

Robust, well rounded malt notes make this a very nice example of the style.
